Meeting History

Feb 1, 2018 9:30 AM  Government Operations Committee Regular Meeting

Ms. Champion asked about the designation of successor for the Youth Services Department as it states no designee. Mr. McGuire was unable to answer that question and said he would look into it. Mr. Wood also commented that the Department has recently hired a new person and that may have something to do with it.
